Over the past eight years, anyone holding conservative or traditional beliefs have been successfully defined and labeled as intolerant. The mainstream media has convinced progressive minds that a Trump presidency will fundamentally harm minorities. In the last few days before election day, messages of fear were spread to ensure a desired outcome.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer, Romans 12:12.
However, after Donald Trump was announced as president elect on Wednesday morning, the tables have been turned. Those once judging others of not willing to accept or allow opposing views are now throwing tantra tantrums. College students have opted out of exams, high school students have been offered counseling and protesters are trashing neighborhoods in anger. Perhaps, the accusers have now become intolerant?
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, Deuteronomy 31:6.
Whenever individuals place their trust in temporary ideas created by human beings set themselves up for failure. Life is hard enough as it is, but those who want to remain in control will not find peace until they let go. In times of uncertainty, faith can kick in if you cry out to the Lord in prayer. Despite what people may label you, seek the Lord for insight so that when the final outcome doesn’t go your way fruits of righteousness will shine through.
